    Hi everyone I recently picked this up for an awesome price. :D I think it is VAM 5 and I want others opinions to confirm it. :) It is in a GSA holder with the box and COA. :kewl: I am probably going to send it to NGC soon and I am wondering what you guys think it will grade. :hug:

    You can compare it to this one. :kewl:

    I agree it's a VAM-5 and I'd say MS-63 maybe MS-64. :D

    Gorgeous snab! :thumb:

    Ribbit :)

    Ps: You should send it to me for grading. :kewl:

    Pps: Nice die crack on the eagle's right wing (your left). :D

    I was thinking MS62/63 but IDK.

    Edit: do all GSAs rattle around in their holder? :confused:
    I'll stick with NGC. ;)
    A lot of my morgans have a die crack in that spot. There is a common (but nice) die clash on the other wing BTW.

    G-R-E-A-T coin Garrett! :D I would say MS-62. Nice VAM! :)

    I think that one is better then a MS63, but it's always hard to tell without the coin in hand.....good snag though.

    Ps: If you send it to SGS, it should grade MS-70. :D

    Ribbit :goofer:

    Ps: I should get a job grading at SGS, since I suck at grading silver. :rolleyes:

    You should have posted this in the U.S. Coin Forum. :goof: I think it would have gotten more traffic there. ;)

    Ribbit :D

    classy morgan - I'd give it an MS-62 grade from the photo unless some of those frost breaks are actually wear.

    Garrett checked all my GSA coins , none rattled that I checked , I wouldn't worry though , unless the seem looks cracked . Gotta love them Carson Cities .

    Can't be wear as it's a GSA CC taken straight from Mint Bags .:whistle:

    that's a very nice piece Garrett, congratulation. I would give it MS-63 but as many said it's hard to say without holding the piece in hand.

    actually it can be. They threw circulated Morgans into those bags, although that looks like classic CC GSA sliding, clanking et al.

    I'm pretty sure that it's not considered wear until it leaves the mint , putting coins in Mint bags is part of the minting and distribution process , so they are considered hits or rubs , not wear , Doug where are you ?:D

    Yeah, they call them Bag Marks. ;) Now, if they called them Mark's Bag, then it would be referring to Mark's GF/Wifey but we won't go there. :whistle:

    Ribbit :cool:
